Connect using a commercially available optical digital audio cable. • You may find it useful to have the manuals supplied with your other components handy when connecting this player. • If you come across any unfamiliar terms in this section of the manual, take a look at the Glossary starting on page 51. When connecting this player up to your TV, AV receiver or other components, make sure that all components are switched off and unplugged. 1 DIGITAL AUDIO OUT – COAXIAL This is a digital audio output for connection to a PCM, Dolby Digital, DTS and/or MPEG- compatible AV receiver that has a coaxial digital input. Connect using a commercially available coaxial digital audio cable. 2 AUDIO OUT L / R This pair of analog audio outputs connects to your TV, AV receiver or stereo system. Even if you are connecting up one of the digital outputs, we still recommend you connect these jacks. Use the supplied audio/video cable when connecting these jacks. Match the colors of the jacks and cables for correct stereo sound. 3 AV CONNECTOR (RGB) - TV This is a combined audio and video output for connection to a TV that has a SCART input. Connect using a SCART cable. The type of video output can be switched to suit your TV. See page 12 and 41.

Connecting Up 02 11 En The setup described here is a basic setup that allows you to play discs using just the cables supplied with the player. In this setup, stereo audio is played through the speakers in your TV. • This player is equipped with copy protection technology. Do not connect this player to your TV via a VCR (or your VCR via this player) using AV cables, as the picture from this player will not appear properly on your TV. (This player may also not be compatible with some combination TV/VCRs for the same reason; refer to the manufacturer for more information.) 1 Connect the VIDEO OUT and AUDIO OUT jacks to a set of A/V inputs on your TV. Use the supplied audio/video cable, connect- ing the red and white plugs to the audio outputs and the yellow plug to the video output. Make sure you match up the left and right audio outputs with their corresponding inputs for correct stereo sound. See below if you want to use a SCART cable for the audio/video connection, or an S-Video cable for the video connection. 2 Connect the supplied AC power cord to the AC IN inlet, then plug into a power outlet.

Connecting Up 02 12 En • Before unplugging the player from the power outlet, make sure you first switch it into standby using either the front panel STANDBY/ON button, or the remote control, and wait of the -OFF- message to disappear from the player’s display. • For the above reasons, do not plug this player into a switched power supply found on some amplifiers and AV receivers. Connecting using the S-Video output If your TV has an S-Video input, you can use this instead of the standard (composite) output for a better quality picture. 1 Use an S-Video cable (not supplied) to connect the S-VIDEO OUT to an S-Video input on your TV (or monitor or AV receiver). Line up the small triangle above the jack with the same mark on the plug before plugging in. DIGITAL AUDIO OUT S L R VIDEO OUT COAXIAL OPTICAL AUDIO OUT AV CONNECTOR (RGB)-TV TV S-VIDEO INPUT Connecting using the AV connector output If your TV has a SCART-type AV input, you can use a SCART cable to connect this player to your TV. This type of connection carries both the sound and the picture, so there’s no need to connect up the AUDIO OUT L/R and VIDEO OUT jacks. 1 Use a SCART cable (not supplied) to connect the AV CONNECTOR (RGB)-TV to an AV input on your TV. DIGITAL AUDIO OUT S L R VIDEO OUT COAXIAL OPTICAL AUDIO OUT AV CONNECTOR (RGB)-TV TV SCART This connector can output standard (com- posite), S-Video or RGB component video. The default setting is standard, which should work with all TVs. Consult the manual that came with your TV to see if you can use one of the higher quality settings. See page 41 for how to change the video output. • SCART cables are available in several configurations. Make sure that the one you get will work with this player and your TV/monitor. You can find the pin assignments on page 54.
Connecting Up 02 13 En Connecting to an AV receiver To enjoy multichannel surround sound you need to connect this player to an AV receiver using a digital output. The DV-454 has both coaxial and optical digital jacks; use which- ever is convenient. The DV-350 has only a coaxial jack. In addition to a digital connection, we recommend also connecting using the stereo analog connection. You’ll probably also want to connect a video output to your AV receiver. You can use any of the video outputs available on this player (the illustration shows a standard (compos- ite) connection). 1 Connect one of DIGITAL OUT jacks on this player to a digital input on your AV receiver. DIGITAL AUDIO OUT S L R VIDEO OUT COAXIAL OPTICAL AUDIO OUT AV CONNECTOR (RGB)-TV AV receiver DIGITAL IN OPTICAL DIGITAL IN COAXIAL This enables you to listen to multichannel surround sound. For an optical connection, use an optical cable (not supplied) to connect the OPTICAL DIGITAL OUT jack to an optical input on your AV receiver. For a coaxial connection, use a coaxial cable (similar to the supplied video cable) to connect the COAXIAL DIGITAL OUT jack to a coaxial input on your AV receiver. 2 Connect the analog AUDIO OUT L/R and VIDEO OUT jacks on this player to a set of analog audio and video inputs on your AV receiver. DIGITAL AUDIO OUT S L R VIDEO OUT COAXIAL OPTICAL AUDIO OUT AV CONNECTOR (RGB)-TV AV receiver AUDIO/ VIDEO INPUT The diagram shows standard video connec- tions, but you can alternatively use the S- Video or SCART cable connections if they’re available. 3 Connect the AV receiver’s video output to a video input on your TV. • You usually have to connect the same kind of video cable between your DVD player and AV receiver, and between your AV receiver and TV.
Connecting Up 02 14 En • My TV doesn’t have any inputs to connect the DVD player. How can I watch DVDs? Unfortunately, if your TV has no inputs you can’t use this player with it. • My VCR is already connected to my TV, so there aren’t any spare inputs. What should I do? If all your TV’s inputs are already in use, you can buy a video input selector from an electronics store, which effectively gives you more inputs. • My TV only has one input for the sound. What should I plug it into? If you don’t mind mono sound, you can buy a stereo RCA-to-mono RCA cable from an electronics store. Connect the stereo end to this player and the mono end to your TV. If you want stereo sound, connect this player to your amplifier or stereo system using a stereo audio cable. • I connected the DVD player to my AV receiver, and although the sound is fine, there’s no picture. What did I do wrong? Make sure that the type of video connection from the DVD player to your AV receiver is the same as that from the receiver to your TV. Most AV receivers won’t convert from one kind of connec- tion to another.

Getting Started 04 23 En Playing discs The basic playback controls for playing DVD, CD, Video CD and MP3 discs are covered here. Further functions are detailed in the next chapter. 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 STANDBY/ON OPEN/CLOSE 4 1 ¡ ¢ 8 7 3 0 ENTER ENTER 1 If the player isn’t already on, press STANDBY/ON to switch it on. If you’re playing a DVD or Video CD, also turn on your TV and make sure that it is set to the correct video input. 2 Press 0 OPEN/CLOSE to open the disc tray. 3 Load a disc. Load a disc with the label side facing up, using the disc tray guide to align the disc (if you’re loading a double-sided DVD disc, load it with the side you want to play face down). 4 Press 3 (play) to start playback. If you’re playing a DVD or Video CD, a menu may appear. See pages 25, 26 for how to navigate these. If you’re playing an MP3 disc, it may take a few seconds before playback starts, depend- ing on the complexity of the file structure on the disc. • After I load a DVD disc, it ejects automati- cally after a few seconds! Most likely, the disc is the wrong region for your player. The region number should be printed on the disc; check it against the region number of the player (which you can find on the rear panel). See also page 9. If the region number is OK, it may be that the disc is damaged or dirty. Clean the disc and look for signs of damage. See also page 47.
Getting Started 04 24 En • Why won’t the disc I loaded play? First check that you loaded the disc the right way up (label side up), and that it’s clean and not damaged. See page 47 for information on cleaning discs. If a disc loaded correctly won’t play, it’s probably an incompatible format or disc type, such as DVD-Audio or DVD-ROM. See page 8 for more on disc compatibility. • I have a widescreen TV so why are there black bars at the top and bottom of the screen when I play some discs? Some movie formats are such that even when played on a widescreen TV, black bars are necessary at the top and bottom of the screen. This is not a malfunction. • I have a standard (4:3) TV and set the player to show widescreen DVDs in pan & scan format, so why do I still get black bars top and bottom with some discs? Some discs override the display preferences of the player, so even if you have 4:3 (Pan & Scan) selected, those discs will still be shown in letterbox format. This is not a malfunction. • My AV receiver is definitely compatible with 96kHz Linear PCM audio, but it doesn’t seem to work with this player. What’s wrong? For digital copy-protection purposes, some 96kHz DVD discs are automatically downsampled to 48kHz. This is not a malfunction. With these kinds of discs, if you want to enjoy high- quality analog audio, set Digital Out to Off (page 39), and 96kHz PCM Out to 96kHz (page 40).

Additional Information 08 47 En Storing discs Although CDs and DVD discs are more durable than vinyl records, you should still take care to handle and store discs correctly. When you're not using a disc, return it to its case and store upright. Avoid leaving discs in excessively cold, humid, or hot environ- ments (including under direct sunlight). Don't glue paper or put stickers onto the disc, or use a pencil, ball-point pen or other sharp-tipped writing instrument. These could all damage the disc. For more detailed care information see the instructions that come with discs. Do not load more than one disc into the player at a time. Discs to avoid Discs spin at high speed inside the player. If you can see that a disc is cracked, chipped, warped, or otherwise damaged, don't risk using it in your player—you could end up damaging the unit. This unit is designed for use with conven- tional, fully circular discs only. Use of shaped discs is not recommended for this product. Pioneer disclaims all liability arising in connection with the use of shaped discs. Taking care of your player and discs Handling discs When holding discs of any type, take care not to leave fingerprints, dirt or scratches on the disc surface. Hold the disc by its edge or by the center hole and edge. Damaged or dirty discs can affect playback performance. Take care also not to scratch the label side of the disc. Although not as fragile as the recorded side, scratches can still result in a disc becoming unusable. Should a disc become marked with finger- prints, dust, etc., clean using a soft, dry cloth, wiping the disc lightly from the center to the outside edge as shown in the diagram below. Wipe lightly from the center of the disc using straight strokes. Don’t wipe the disc surface using circular strokes. If necessary, use a cloth soaked in alcohol, or a commercially available CD/DVD cleaning kit to clean a disc more thoroughly. Never use benzine, thinner or other cleaning agents, including products designed for cleaning vinyl records.
Additional Information 08 48 En ✗ Place directly on top of an amplifier, or other component in your stereo system that becomes hot in use. ✗ Use near a television or monitor as you may experience interference—especially if the television uses an indoor antenna. ✗ Use in a kitchen or other room where the player may be exposed to smoke or steam. ✗ Use on a thick rug or carpet, or cover with cloth—this may prevent proper cooling of the unit. ✗ Place on an unstable surface, or one that is not large enough to support all four of the unit’s feet. Moving the player If you need to move the player, first press STANDBY/ON on the front panel to turn the player off. Wait for -OFF- to disappear from the display, then unplug the power cord. Never lift or move the unit during playback—discs rotate at a high speed and may be damaged. Power cord caution Handle the power cord by the plug part. Do not pull out the plug by tugging the cord, and never touch the power cord when your hands are wet, as this could cause a short circuit or electric shock. Do not place the unit, a piece of furniture, or other object on the power cord or pinch the cord in any other way. Never make a knot in the cord or tie it with other cords. The power cords should be routed so that they are not likely to be stepped on. A damaged power cord can cause a fire or give you an electric shock. Check the power cord once in a while. If you find it damaged, ask your nearest Pioneer authorized service center or your dealer for a replacement. Cleaning the pickup lens The DVD player’s lens should not become dirty in normal use, but if for some reason it should malfunction due to dust or dirt, consult your nearest Pioneer-authorized service center. Although lens cleaners for CD players are commercially available, we do not recommend using them since some may damage the lens. Problems with condensation Condensation may form inside the player if it is brought into a warm room from outside, or if the temperature of the room rises quickly. Although the condensation won’t damage the player, it may temporarily impair its performance. For this reason you should leave it to adjust to the warmer temperature for about an hour before switching on and using. Hints on installation We want you to enjoy using this unit for years to come, so please bear in mind the following points when choosing a suitable location for it: Do... ✓ Use in a well-ventilated room. ✓ Place on a solid, flat, level surface, such as a table, shelf or stereo rack. Don’t... ✗ Use in a place exposed to high tempera- tures or humidity, including near radiators and other heat-generating appliances. ✗ Place on a window sill or other place where the player will be exposed to direct sunlight. ✗ Use in an excessively dusty or damp environment.
Additional Information 08 49 En Screen sizes and disc formats DVD-Video discs come in several different screen aspect ratios, ranging from TV programs, which are generally 4:3, to CinemaScope widescreen movies, with an aspect ratio of up to about 7:3. Televisions, too, come in different aspect ratios; ‘standard’ 4:3 and widescreen 16:9. Widescreen TV users If you have a widescreen TV, the TV Screen setting (page 41) of this player should be set to 16:9 (Wide). When you watch discs recorded in 4:3 format, you can use the TV controls to select how the picture is presented. Your TV may offer various zoom and stretch options; see the instructions that came with your TV for details. Please note that some movie aspect ratios are wider than 16:9, so even though you have a widescreen TV, these discs will still play in a ‘letterbox’ style with black bars at the top and bottom of the screen. Standard TV users If you have a standard TV, the TV Screen setting (page 41) of this player should be set to 4:3 (Letter Box) or 4:3 (Pan&Scan), depending on which you prefer. Set to 4:3 (Letter Box), widescreen discs are shown with black bars top and bottom. Set to 4:3(Pan&Scan), widescreen discs are shown with the left and right sides cropped. Although the picture looks larger, you don’t actually see the whole picture. Please note that many widescreen discs override the player’s settings so that the disc is shown in letterbox format regardless of the setting. • Using the 16:9 (Wide) setting with a standard 4:3 TV, or either of the 4:3 settings with a widescreen TV, will result in a distorted picture. Resetting the player Use this procedure to reset all the player’s settings to the factory default. 1 Switch the player into standby. 2 Using the front panel buttons, hold down the 7 (stop) button and press STANDBY/ON to switch the player back on. All the player’s settings are now reset, and you should see the ‘Let’s Get Started’ screen.
